Challenge

While Madagascar is home to incredible biodiversity (80% of its species can be found nowhere else in the world) it has also suffered from devastating deforestation which has destroyed all but 10% of the island's precious primary forests. Baobab Alley's ancient and endangered GiantBaobab trees represent an irreplaceable natural treasure which are now protected by these women rangers who patrol daily, significantly reducing vandalism and environmental destruction.

Solution

Empower our 6 women forest guards with funding and support to protect Madagascar's Giant Baobabs. These women are the frontline defenders, patrolling Baobab Alley to deter threats like graffiti, bark stripping, and illegal fires. Supporting their plant nursery has improved the wildlife habitat with upwards of 90% sapling survival rate.

Long-Term Impact

With your support, we aim to sustain ranger patrols, ensuring the long-term conservation of Baobab Alley. Women forest rangers will patrol the area on bicycles, intercept threats, transport Baobab seedlings, and engage with the community. Official ranger gear will symbolize their unity and commitment, amplifying their authority and impact. Your contribution secures a future where Baobab Alley is protected, biodiversity flourishes, and women stand as pillars of conservation.
